Voters are sharply divided about a Hillary Clinton run for the White House, although she still has sizable advantages over other potential Democratic and Republican candidates, a new poll shows.
Fifty percent of those surveyed said they could support Clinton, and 48 percent said they would oppose her potential presidential bid, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday.
Clinton’s tenure with the Obama administration could also work against her, as 71 percent said they want the next president to take a different approach than the current occupant of the White House. Showing further voter fatigue, 40 percent said they want to see a Republican elected, whereas 38 percent prefer a Democrat.
Nevertheless, Clinton’s numbers are still strong compared with those of the GOP hopefuls.
